A New Kind of Car
I’ve been thinking about cars lately. In Los Angeles, a car is not just a necessity, it’s an image. Some people say “You are what you drive.” There are those who go into debt to drive the “image” that they want to project. Well, I say: get over it! Just like “a rose is a rose,” so “a car is a car!” Granted, our transportation must be properly maintained, clean and in good repair. It should also be environmentally friendly. But isn’t that true of each one of us, too? We are a part of this planet, and we are consumers at the same time. We have to do our part. I want to get a Hybrid for my next car, but they seem to be in short supply, so I’m on some waiting lists. Meanwhile, in my “search” I came across this great site that is actually giving away a Toyota Prius! New American Dream is sponsoring a contest to come up with a slogan that will convince auto-makers to make more of these fuel-efficient, quiet hybrid cars. The slogan I submitted is “Green is the new Black.” Very fashion-forward is what I am going for! The New American Dream site lots of ideas we all can use to live more consciously and make a difference in our world. Check it out at: http://www.newdream.org
What do you drive and why? How do you do your part in taking care of the environment? Let’s talk about it on the discussion board!
